Along the lines of letting parents know the artists we study in class;
my students recreate huge art prints on posterboard. Students study
famous works and paint their rendition of them on a large piece of
posterboard. (The board was donated from a box company in the area).
The paintings are then laminated and we hung them over the ceiling tiles
in the art room. I have been doing this for about 5 years now. My
ceiling is almost filled. Like a tiny museum.
Other students, teachers and parents can view famous works at any time,
by just looking up!!!
Also our high school has a commons area (lounge) for the students. This
same concept of ceiling tile paintings has been used there also. Senior
art students leave their mark on the school by creating a ceiling tile
to represent their class. This also has cut down on graffiti (Class of
97' written everywhere).
